Biltong and Cheese Potato Fritters

Have you got a game day planned this weekend and need snacks or a great side dish? Gameday in South Africa means that there is almost always biltong on the snack list, so let’s double-up on the goodness. Our cheese and biltong potato fritters with sweet chilli mayo are a combination of great local flavours with biltong, potato fritters and cheese.

About your cheese and biltong potato fritters

When making the mashed potatoes for your fritters, you can use a hand masher for a more rustic texture or a potato ricer. We like using the more rustic style because it goes well with the corn and biltong. Biltong adds that familiar salty South African flavour and adds great depth to the fritters. You can stack them high for a great side dish or serve them one by one as a mid-game snack. To top it all off, cheese just brings everything together. Serve it with a salad and your sweet chilli mayonnaise and enjoy.
